Syntax: wx.StatuBar.SetStatusText(self, text, i=0)

Parameters:

ParameterInput TypeDescription
textstringThe text to be set. Use an empty string (“”) to clear the field.
iintThe field to set, starting from zero.

import wx
  
  
class Example(wx.Frame):
  
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
  
        self.InitUI()
  
    def InitUI(self):
  
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        self.statusbar = wx.StatusBar()
        self.statusbar.Create(self, id = 1, name = "Status Bar")
        self.SetStatusBar(self.statusbar)
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
  
        # SET TOTAL NUMBER OF FIELDS AND RESPECTIVE WIDTHS
        self.statusbar.SetFieldsCount(3, [100, 80, 60])
  
        # SET TEXT FOR ALL FIELDS
        self.statusbar.SetStatusText("Field One", 0)
        self.statusbar.SetStatusText("Field Two", 1)
        self.statusbar.SetStatusText("Field Three", 2)
  
        self.SetTitle('New Frame Title')
        self.Centre()
        print(self.statusbar.GetMinHeight())
  
  
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
